Literacy education center

A center that was launched in the Carver public schools two years ago to provide professional development and support for literacy education in southeastern Massachusetts has trained 2,000 people, according to a press release from HILL for Literacy, a nonprofit organization that develops literacy programs. The Makepeace Literacy Leadership Center, located in the school administration building on Main Street, was established by a grant from A.D. Makepeace Co. Carver Superintendent Liz Sorrell said in the press release that after she conceived of the idea for “a regional model for dissemination of best practices in literacy,” A.D. Makepeace provided a grant because “they believed in me, and believed in the results we were getting.” The 2,000 teachers trained by the Makepeace Center come from 55 districts in southeastern Massachusetts.
